Massacres in West Africa: where are the airstrikes?

The situation in Cote d'Ivoire is deteriorating rapidly. A major massacre is reported at Duekoue, in the western part of the country. I don't know what news you are receiving, but what is being reported here (in Ghana) as the slaughter of Gbagbo supporters (who by all accounts lost the election) by Outtara supporters.

In Libya, Gaddhafi had only promised to massacre civilians. Here, actual massacres are already taking place.

Will there be any action on the part of the UN or other interested parties, or do they only protect civilians on the right side?

I am expecting to travel to Nzemaland, near the border between Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire early next week and will try to look in on the refugee situation.
